    Hi everybody,

    Due to an administration error by me a number of spammers had their registrations approved today.

    So until we can delete them from our database there will be spam threads appearing.

    Also you may find Private Messages in your inbox, I had several, if you open the Private Message nothing should happen we don't think. But whatever you do please do not click on any links contained in the message. Please just delete these messages.

    Please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience or offence you may have been caused.

    We are working as hard as we can to clear this problem and it will be done as soon as possible, but it may take us a couple of days.

    Sincerely yours,
    Martin Charles,

    In case anyone notices, that Martin has been reset to a Junior Member with one post; there is also a problem with his username. But the post is genuine.

    The registrations have now been deleted so we should be spam free again. Please continue to report any suspect posts you may see on here.

    Regrettably in ploughing through the list, there has been some casualties of friendly fire

    I have managed to delete Trevor Leighton and Chairman Martin Charles plus two new genuine registrations.
    Hopefully we can sort this out over the next couple of days.

    Dave - Thanks for your help pitching in on the mouse clicking session.

    Hi Tim,

    You must have worked all night to sort that little lot out. On behalf of everybody thank you so much for all that effort.

    As to having deleted my original account, anybody want a Chairman's job :confused: , because we don't have one now ;)

    Hi Gary,
    Thanks for the kind words, yes I'm still here, but you will notice I'm a newbie junior member now, only two posts. So guess that means I'll have to a N sticker next time out ;)

    But the thanks for sorting this really go to webmaster Tim G and Dave Livingstone, they did 90% of the work in putting things right once my original account was deleted.

    Interesting wasn't a word I heard muttered too many times on Monday evening :D
